Maria Lassnig. Works, Diaries & Writings

Focusing on Maria Lassnig’s elaborations of the self-portrait and her exploration of her relations with the object, animal and machine, this book presents works from 1942 until recent years. Lassnig’s main preoccupation was a relentless self-questioning, one she subjected herself to throughout her life. Her self-portraits manage to be informal and are expressed in traumatic, Surrealist forms that merge the human with the animal, the human with the machine. The catalogue contains a selection of paintings, most of them from the artist’s studio, as well as a selection of watercolours and videos, plus letters, photos, drawings, writings and material from her personal and work archives.
